Kellen Winslow ready to play for Patriots in Baltimore

Kellen Winslow didn’t need long to get ready to play for the Patriots.

Winslow, the tight end who signed with New England on Tuesday, will be active for tonight’s game against the Ravens, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said this week that the coaching staff gave Winslow a crash course and got him at least comfortable enough that he knows what he’s supposed to do on a handful of plays that the Patriots could call when he’s in the game.

We try to prioritize what the person needs as a foundation and then what the person needs to go out and be able to play in the game in the role that we would ask them to play in,” Belichick said.

The ankle injury that tight end Aaron Hernandez suffered last week left the Patriots suddenly scrambling to find help at a position at which they were the deepest team in the league. Bringing in Winslow — and having him ready to go after just five days — could go a long way toward alleviating the problems that the absence of Hernandez caused in last Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals.

    If the Patriots thought that Chad Johnson was a numbskull, wait til they get a load of this guy… This is simply more evidence that the Patriots are desperate and in rapid decline…

    Another head case. He wore out his welcome in Cleveland, Tampa Bay.
    In his mind, team has many “I’s”

    So stupid!!

    How the hell is filling a roster spot with a guy who is only going to be there until Hernandez comes back “evidence” that a team is in decline?

    A team that is one of the youngest in the NFL.

    You haters can wish it all you want, it doesn’t make it so.

    Going to the Super Bowl last year, not losing anyone on offense, totally strengthening your defense and being one missed 42 yard field goal away from being 2-0 this year is “rapid decline” lol thank god their are tards like you out there that make all us Patriots fans feel even better about ourselves.

    The man HAD amazing talent. Could have been better than Vernon Davis if he didn’t blow it with the motorcycle accident. He’s been playing on one leg since (doesn’t practice full time and let’s not forget the staph infection that could have killed him). Don’t get me wrong, this is coming from a Bucs fan who acknowledges he was a cancer here.

    @kisstherings

    As a Pats fan, we lost people. Matt Light and Dan Koppen both say “hi.” The question that has yet to be answered is, “Did we upgrade?”

    So he picked up a play book in 6 days that Chad Johnson struggled with for 6 months?

    he’s 100% right but they don’t want to hear it……..

    Of course he’s ready 2 play, HE’S A SOLIDER!

    KW II can still play ball. He may not be his old man, but neither are 26 TEs starting in the NFL today. He’s also never had a QB worth a darn throwing him the ball. If he gets a chance to play a significant amount of time, KW II will produce for Brady and Belichick.

    Wonder how long BB will put up with K2′s no practice rule.

    Exactly what I was going to say…This guy has been here since Tuesday and he already has enough of a grasp on the playbook to be playing tonight whereas Chad couldn’t get even a basic idea of any of the plays in the entire time he was here? No wonder no one wants to sign him

    He SAYS he knws the playbook. Saying you know it is a little different than actually knowing it.

    For once, I’d like to see Jr. shut his mouth and produce, just so I don’t think he’s as big a bust as his father was a champion.
